This is the current sketch

The first one is a card using the current sketch (No. 63) which I have turned sideways and used Heather's lovely digi "bubbles flowers"
Green card embossed with butterflies.  Layered digi papers "Cherry Bloom Coral" and "Dotty Coral"  from Imagine That's Spring in Bloom paper set.  Printed "Bubbles Flowers" onto white card and coloured her with markers.  Layered her onto pink card then layered over top of green card and digi paper, added flowers and brads.  Green card was then layered onto pink card.

The second one is a scrapbook page also using the sketch and I have used Heather's digi "Eleanor the Artist"
Typed title onto pink card.  Layered digi paper "flower pattern" from Whimsy stamps "MCG fruit punch paper set onto pink card.  Put digi paper "broad lines" from Trimgym across.  Added Heather's digi "Eleanor the Artist" and coloured her with markers and added photo.

Challenge #62 reminder and a little inspiration

Good morning sketchies,
It is Naomi here with an inspiration post for you today. As this is our first in between week for the new fortnightly format there will be no top picks but I do have a couple of projects to share with you. Both projects are using images from Lacy Sunshine. The first one is a card using the current sketch and the second one is a tag inspired by the movie The Great Gatsby.

Here is the current sketch:

 
And here is my card:
 

For this card I have used Eleanor Hippie Chick and coloured her with my copic markers. The patterned paper is from My Mind's Eye "Indie Chick - Saffron" 6x6 paper pad and I matched that with Rose Red and More Mustard Stampin'Up cardstock. The paper flowers are from my stash and the flower ribbon is a cool product I picked up at my last visit to Paper Squared in Mornington, it is self adhesive which makes it so simple to apply. I added some small rhinestones to her hair and stickles to her glasses for some sparkle.


#62

The copics I used are:
 Skin: E000,E00,E21,E11,
 Lips: E93,E04
 Eyes: YG91,YG93,YG97,C00,C1
 Hair: E51,E53,E97
 Tops: R81,R83,R85,Y31,Y35
 Pants: E31,E35,E37
 Glasses: RV52,RV55



This next project was definitely inspired by two things, Heather's gorgeous Gatsby images and also the movie itself The Great Gatsby.
I have made a tag using Lady Maddie Gatsby with a vintage look, which is something I really love doing and have decided to start doing more of again.

I did experiment a little with embossing powders and utee for this project. I wanted to replicate the look of fran-tage so I mixed some rose gold embossing powder with utee and tried that. I am really happy with the end result and will definitely be trying some other mixes to see what I can come up with.


 
  The copics I used are:
  Skin: E000,E00,E21,E11,R20,R30
  Eyes/Lips E81,E84,E87,C1,C00,E04,R20
  Hair: Y21,Y26,Y28
  Dress: R81,R83,R85,R89
  Socks/Shoes: E40,E41,E444,E47,E49
  Bracelets: Y32,Y35,E33




I hope these projects inspire you to join in our current challenge which you can find here. We already have a number of fantastic entries who will all earn themselves an entry into this months random prize draw which has generously been sponsored by Lacy Sunshine.
